Today is the last day for Minnesotans to sign up for health coverage beginning January 1

ST. PAUL, Minn.—Today is the last day for Minnesotans to sign up for health coverage beginning January 1, 2018. Over the last few days, and including the start of today, MNsure has been very busy. Yesterday, there were over 50,000 MNsure.org sessions and MNsure fielded over 5,000 calls. Today is off to a strong start as well, with nearly 21,000 MNsure.org sessions and over 2,200 calls.

To date, MNsure has enrolled over 106,000 Minnesotans in health coverage for 2018 and the average tax credit for Minnesota families is over $7,000 a year.

MNsure.org will remain available for consumers to shop until midnight and the contact center will remain open till midnight as well. Any calls on hold at midnight will be answered.

If Minnesotans do not apply for health coverage by midnight tonight, they can still get coverage beginning February 1, 2018 if they apply by January 14, 2018.

The 2018 open enrollment period is November 1, 2017 to January 14, 2018.  Ninety-six percent of Minnesotans have health coverage--the highest percentage in state history. This year, an individual earning up to $48,240 a year, or a family of four earning up to $98,400 a year could qualify. More information can be found at mnsure.org.

I just posted an update from a few days ago which had MNsure's enrollment tally at 101,626 people as of 12/15, so it looks like they've added another 4,400 or so in the past few days since then.

Minnesota's official total last year was 109,974 according to ASPE, so they're within 4,000 enrollees of breaking that number with a full 4 weeks left to go (the exchange itself claims a higher 2017 total of 117,654...not sure what that's about...
